4:19 pm
place the polling and put in your vote. we have a cloudy sky and i think we stay that way through early evening and could break up the clouds a little bit through sunset. what i'm monitoring out here to the west. they are expecting a severe weather outbreak. nothing yet as far as watches are concerned, but we may be talking about tornadoes in illinois with this front. a lot of instability here. this is a spring-like pattern. so the storms are going to flare-up here and then track east and we are going to get the leftover stuff by morning. it won't be severe by the time that rain and storms make it here. we are only at 50 but look how close the real warm stuff is. 72 in indianapolis. i have temperatures holding steady tonight, not real chilly. you can see we will stay dry, a lot of cloud cover and especially after 2:00 in the morning. this is 8:00 a.m. tomorrow
4:20 pm
going real aggressive at all with this rain. but i do think overnight rain and storms are going to be monitoring it very closely here. it won't be until late tonight. 52 will be the low in cleveland. akron-canton you are down to 47. i think you could see breaks in the cloud cover enough to allow for that temperature drop. storms late. now tomorrow morning we have wet conditions around. showers and storms. this is 9:00 a.m, so the best threat will be in the morning and then we get into a bit of a break. small chance or isolated showers and storms will form in the afternoon, but i do have an alert tomorrow morning. for the morning commute rain and storms. could be some ponding in some of these storms and it is going to be a windy day and even warmer than today as temperatures will start out in the mid 50s, and we're going to be warming, i think, low to mid 60s.
4:21 pm
gusting over 30, a few showers and storms around especially in the morning. it will be cooler on st. patrick's day, 53 and windy. small chance of a shower on st. patrick's day. i think most of the day should be dry. and then look at what happens on friday. a few morn showers, windy, only 39 with the wind off of the lake. saturday mostly cloudy, chilly, 39. saturday night cloudy and sunday 41. so it is going to be a pretty chilly weekend around here as we get into colder air. in fact, monday may have some snow showers around and 41. so an alert there. i believe that's the first day of the astronomical spring. see what happens? >> romona: thanks a lot. >> jeff: there you go. >> mark: thanks, jeff. still ahead in the buzz. >> romona: talk show titans which topped forbes list for the highest paid of all time.

4:28 pm
4:29 pm
march march welcome back. we continue our campaign 2016
4:30 pm
>> romona: she is at baldwin wall list college for election night where governor kasich will sarah? >> reporter: this is a make or break night for governor kasich. his watch party is kicking off in a couple of hours. the stage is set and ready to go. if kasich wins, he could put a dent in donald trump's momentum but on the other hand kasich has said if he loses ohio, he will drop out of the race. so, of course, bic big stakes here tonight. in the polls in ohio we are hearing trump and kasich arsonist neck-and--neck. i was at a rally yesterday where trump started going off kasich calling him an an sentee governor. kasich continues to remain positive on the campaign trail
4:31 pm
he has won a few key endorsements also across the state from former house speaker john boehner and, of course, ohio state football coach urban meyer. the polls are set to close at 7:30 tonight. of course, 66 delegates are up for grabs, and we will be here throughout the night watching cleveland 19. >> romona: thank you, sarah. we continue our political team coverage with dr. jason johnson. >> mark: let's get right into it. what are your predictions on both sides here is this what's going on? >> i think that hillary clinton is going to be pretty successful tonight. i think she will win the majority of the states. she is certainly going to do well in places like north carolina. i think the only place that's really sort of up for grabs on the democratic side is ohio. i think we could be surprised there by bernie sanders, and i think on the republican side donald trump is going to sweep everything, but i do think that john kasich will be the hero of
4:32 pm
and i do think he is going to win ohio tonight and keep that prize out of donald trump's hands. >> romona: there is no path forward for john kasich or rubio if they lose their states tonight. but both have indicated that they might not drop out. i know a lot has been said about kasich saying he is staying in but i also heard him say he might not drop out. what would be the strategy for them to stay? >> well, if you don't drop out of the race, then they're still your delegates and you would be able to have a greater amount of control of where those delegates end up going if we end up with the very, very scary broker convention in cleveland. so john kasich will go in with a tremendous amount of power. if he wins ohio tonight, he's got all the ohio delegates and he can say look, i will throw them to cruz, i will throw them to rubio. he could be a power player in white be a brokered convention. there are a lot of reasons why candidates don't want to disappear. same with marco rubio.
4:33 pm
but he wants to keep the delegates he has. he is afraid if he drops out of the race the delegates are free and may go to donald trump. >> mark: dr. jason johnson joining us from baltimore right now. the road to presidency goes through ohio. can ohio be the road block? let's say kasich wins tonight. how much time does he have to try to gain as much as he needs to make this a fight? >> romona: can you hear us, jason? >> yes, i can hear you know. >> mark: there you go. that was a long question, too. okay. i'll put it to you this way. if kasich does win tonight, how much time does he have left to really make a run for this? >> well, mathematically he can't do anything, right? if you are down by 40 points, i don't care how good kyrie is you aren't going to make arches did. he hasn't been that good. broker. he essentially becomes then the person who can make the final
4:34 pm
go against donald trump. here's one thing. i think compared to ted cruz and compared to marco rubio, if you look at their previous behavior to now, john kasich is the only republican candidate who has been pretty consistently against donald trump. he has been critical of trump from the beginning. so i think he is going to hold the delegates, if he can win ohio tonight, and i think he will, he is going to hold those delegates in his pocket and if he can be the difference maker between a trump republican nomination and some other candidate, he is going to use that power. >> romona: jason, let me ask you pretty quickly. ted cruz he has about 100 viewer delegates than trump yet he's not really seeing the love. a lot of people aren't talking about him on this primary day. why is that? >> well, because the republicans, unfortunately, have sort of shot themselves in the foot. after the long drawn out primary situations that they had in 2012, these primaries going forward are winner take all. so you can win the state with
4:35 pm
that's more than anybody else. so as much as ted cruz has been successful in the past, he has also been successful because he amounts. now that we are in ohio and we're in florida and in some of these critical states like competitive anymore. because if he can't beat trump, he gains nothing from these states. that's one of the reasons he has well been suffering. >> mark: dr. jason johnson putting it in plain english as he always done. thank you very much. we appreciate it. >> thanks, guys. >> jeff: update on the weather. cloudy sky, dry across the state. you know, the southern part of the state has seen the best weather here during the primary day here. cincinnati the sunshine, now we are starting to clear out in columbus. around here remains cloudy but dry. interactive radar, we have rain and storms coming in overnight, tomorrow morning. i'm not expecting severe and we'll keep you updated on the
4:36 pm
this is downtown where it has been cooler with the wind off of the lake. generally mid to upper 40s and right around 2:00 in the morning certainly by 4:00 a.m. you can see how the percentage of rain and storms will be going up. temperatures will be in the 50s by morning, but we do have an alert tomorrow morning for the rain and storms during the morning commute. could have ponding out there on the roads. it is going to be a slow go i think and that wind is really going to whip up as well over 30. it is going to be warmer tomorrow than today because we will see more sunshine tomorrow. 50 in cleveland, 56 akron, wind is light, 54 canton, cool spots sandusky there at 49. rain and storms overnight. wet morning ahead and windy. st. patrick's day will be mild. i think we will make it above 50, small chance of a shower there but it will be windy. tomorrow though we are up to 63. windy day. look at that wind gusts over 30.
4:37 pm
especially in the morning, a smaller chance later on in the afternoon. akron-canton 62, windy, very warm and here is a look at the planner. 55, 7:00 a.m, 58 at noon with a mixed sky, spotty showers and storms at 5:00, 62. but morning drive is going to be the best risk of rain and storms. we continue to monitor that situation. here's traffic. >> mark: traffic moving along pretty well here today. you've got cloud cover so no sun glare to worry about. we are pretty dry and volume seems to be right where it should be this time of day and everybody moving along just fine. a lot of people are showing their voting pride on social media. they are snapping selfies out there voting. selfies with your sticker proving you voted, those are fine. but don't do this. this is illegal in ohio to post
4:38 pm
>> romona: texas mega pastor joel olsteen is under fire for calling donald trump a good man during a book tour six months ago. some people on twitter claim the pastor of lakewood church in houston endorsed the republican presidential candidate. church officials say that's not true releasing this statement saying contrary to the misinformation making the rounds on social media, pastor joel olsteen has not endorsed any candidate for president of the united states. coming up in time out with tony, trash talk at the nfl combine. other teams are talking about the browns. yep, that's the word from a front office official. we'll talk about that. plus? >> mark: doesn't it really, j-lo. we've got news for you, love. yeah, it does cost.
